Wonder how we are able to travel so often? We rented this 2 bedroom loft that sleeps 8 people for $349 for a week. Total. That includes taxes and fees. You can too! I recently told you that my sister Miriam and I rented a cheap condo in the Houston area when we went to see my sister Sara get her first after the cancer surgery results. With a family of seven, condos have become our favorite way to travel. It ends up so much easier and cheaper than purchasing multiple hotel rooms.
We stayed on the third floor of the Sweetwater condos, number 12! Some people don’t like doing the stairs, but I really like not having people in the condos above us. I met the sweet family below us who called us “the runners,” as my boys did love to run up and down the hallway. Thankfully for them we were away a lot and really did try to keep our crew quiet. Whew! 🙂
The living area was comfortable and perfect! I loved the flooring, so much easier than carpet for our busy crew. The sofa opens up to a bed. Huge picture windows open up to a balcony that looks toward the pool.
While I work really hard at not cooking when we travel, I love having a full kitchen for quick snacks and meals. Also filling the freezer with ice cream sure makes the kiddos happy after a long, hot day in the sun.
I am happy to report we didn’t have a tummy flu on this trip, but traveling in my husband’s car rather than my van, we found out that my daughter Joy gets car sick… So thankful for laundry facilities!!
Thanks to the website Trading Places and their “Hot deals” this is the third time we have stayed at fabulous accommodations for a very reasonable price. Two years ago we stayed at Stormy Point Village in Branson, MO. It was perfect. Last year our family vacation was in the Orlando, Florida area and Cypress Pointe Resort in Orlando was awesome!
All of this too good to be true for $349? It’s not! The catch? These great deals are mostly available in the off seasons. You have to be willing to wait until about two weeks before you plan to travel to book your stay because rates don’t go down this low until about the last two weeks. That’s it!
